Mal and I had a nice little Friday night. It started with a CrossFit workout and ended with us lounging on the couch watching a movie, drinking wine, and eating chocolate. It definitely wasn’t a bad way to spend a Friday night!
Yesterday’s WOD wasn’t super challenging, so it was a nice break from the past several workouts.
In 12 minutes
Row 2000 meters
In the remaining time AMRAP
Knees to elbows
Score = # of K2E
We started with Handstand Push-ups, which I do with the help of resistance bands. I did 7 sets of 3, no problem, and then attempted a couple of unassisted handstands. I couldn’t press myself up””mostly because my arms were tired””but I was so close! I could feel it! Next time for sure!
For the WOD, we had 12 minutes to do a 2,000 meter row followed by as many Knees to Elbows as you could do for the remaining time. I’ve just started to get the hang of kipping, so I did 5 actual Knees to Elbows + 10 pretty close Knees to Elbows. Hey, I’ll take it. A few weeks ago, I couldn’t even do one!
Mal and I were starving when we got home from CrossFit, so we immediately broke out some hummus + veggies to snack on. I had cut up a ton of veggies the other day for just this reason, and we ended up plowing through all of them! At least it was a healthy snack!
Once dinner was ready, we parked ourselves in front of the TV to watch Super 8. (Super 8 reminded me a lot of The Goonies, so I really liked it. The kid actors were really great, too!)
On the menu for dinner: Veggie Patch Chick’n Nuggets, kale chips, and white wine. I had a coupon for the Chick’n Nuggets, so I bought them on a whim. They were actually pretty good. I’m not sure I’d buy them again because they have a super long crazy list of ingredients, but for a lazy Friday night dinner, they worked out great.
After dinner, I enjoyed a mint Lindt truffle.
And a couple of handfuls of Peanut M & M’s.
And, of course, more wine. Happy Friday to me!
How was your Friday night? Did you enjoy wine, chocolate, and/or a movie?
